Reverse osmosis is a popular form of water treatment used in many homes. The water these units produce is great-tasting, exceptionally clean, and a great product to serve to your friends and family, including your pets. Reverse osmosis might seem like a complicated process, but it’s actually pretty simple.

How Reverse Osmosis Works
In simple terms, reverse osmosis is the process by which water molecules are forced through a semi-permeable membrane under pressure. Reverse osmosis equipment provides filtered water everywhere, from homes and commercial applications like restaurants and hotels, to breweries and car washes. In fact, reverse osmosis water systems can even purify water in space shuttles! Household reverse osmosis water systems typically filter water using the following steps:
- Raw tap water first flows through a sediment filter to remove dirt, rust, and other solid objects.
- The water then flows into a carbon filter that takes out 98% of the chlorine and organic chemicals.
- The next stage is the reverse osmosis membrane, where dissolved solids are removed from the water molecules. These impurities are rinsed down the drain and the clean water is stored for delivery to a designated faucet.
- When you open the valve, the water is filtered one last time with a carbon block “polishing filter” right before it reaches your glass.
Using reverse osmosis filters provides much more pure water than a faucet-mounted filter alone. It is one of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the highest quality water possible. And it’s easy to get with a little help from Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning!
